ABOUT LI RYE

It takes a certain grit to make it out of Mobile, AL. With a population just shy of 200,000 people, its denizens often find themselves stuck in “The Port City”for generations beset by a high crime rate and minimal opportunities. Nevertheless, Li Rye lifts himself beyond the boundaries of his hometown through unfiltered storytelling, unnerving bars, and undeniable melodies. Rather than accept the limitations of his surroundings, the rapper consistently aims much higher. Generating millions of streams and views on his own and landing a deal with Gucci Mane’s The New 1017, he amplifies the voice of his city on his forthcoming 2023 debut and much more to come.

Mobile is really rough,” he states. “We’ve got more projects than suburbs. Not too many people can say, ‘I made it out of Mobile’. So, it’s a blessing when they do.” Music always offered a refuge. At four years old, he watched his father head to prison. Around the house, his stepdad played the likes of Lil Wayne and Chief Keef. At the same time, Li Rye fell in love with R&B and soul icons such as Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross, and Marvin Gaye. “That old vibe of melodies and notes hits your body differently, he says. “If you hear the right song, it’ll change your day. With his stepdad locked up, he turned to the streets post-high school. In 2021, he dropped his Emotional Demon EP and stirred up buzz. He increased his momentum with 2022’s Punch In. The title track “Punch In” clocked over 402K YouTube views, while “EST FLOW” reeled in another 1.5 million YouTube views. Meanwhile, DJ Booth hailed him as one of the “10 Rappers You Should Know Right Now.” His music made its way to Gucci Mane who promptly signed him to The New 1017. Ultimately, Li Rye will make Mobile proud by telling a true story without holding back. If you listen to my music, I try to put emotion in my words,” he leaves off. “You don’t just hear it; you feel it. Whatever you’re going through or experiencing, I’ve got a song for it.
